Introduced by Senators Stroebel and Kapenga, SB 570 would eliminate the requirement for certain state agencies to submit Land Information Plans to the Department of Administration. The WLIA is registered with the GAB as neutral on the bill. WLIA provided written testimony to the Senate Committee on Government Operations and Consumer Protection at their 1/19/16 hearing. In its testimony the WLIA acknowledge that, “DOA has seen limited results from its investment of time consolidating land information plans from state agencies.” The WLIA testimony went on to state that, “there has never been a better time to invest more in coordinating geospatial efforts in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin land information community has shown decades of success coordinating efforts locally, regionally, and across the state. The DOA itself has seen excellent results in working with WI counties in the parcel project and coordinating standardized county reports and plans … We believe that similar success can be achieved in coordinating with State agencies … The state land information plans discussed in SB 570 may not be required in their current form for success but perhaps better results may be seen through active communication, coordinated efforts and technology, and shared data and standards.” The WLIA board values coordinated land information efforts and has offered its service as a resource in the future.
